THIS IS A (PINK) LOVE SONG

Hey,

I had the cutest little weekend with my bestie Lexie Vee, we took loads of photos for some fresh blog posts and I had the honor of raiding her wardrobe hence the baby pink invasion. I kindly got sent this great sporty style bralet from This Is A Love Song and have injected it with some girliness! I've never really been one for baby pink but I think this leather skirt and t bar heels might have slightly converted me. Unfortunately the bra is a too small but i've tried to squeeze myself into it as best I can eek (wishful thinking).

I've always been the biggest TIALS fan and always feel so lucky to be able to review every collection - they seriously come out with some mega gems and i'm a particular fan of this season's sporty vibe. Luckily enough for us all they are now available to buy via [ASOS.com]. Always handy, holla #studentdiscount and #freedelivery








TIALS print bralet - c/o TIALS // Pink t bar shoes - Zara (Lexies) // Pink leather skirt - Topshop (Lexies) // Leather jacket c/o Warehouse

All this pink feels like a new girly me, what are your thoughts? Do you wear much pink?

TRAVELODGE BOURNEMOUTH SEAFRONT

Helloo,

Last week me and my friend took a little trip to Bournemouth courtesy of Travelodge. When I booked the room back in July we had 30 degrees heat so obviously a seaside town would of been fab but in reality the weather got a lot cooler and it wasn't quite skinny dipping and frolicking on beach. I did however have such a fun time as a change of environment and fresh sea air is always welcome. 

We stayed in Travelodge Hotel which was just set back from the seafront but still with a great view from our room. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly showing us how to get to town and suggesting the best place to go on a Wednesday night - bit of an error trying to find somewhere booming midweek and non student time but of course we found somewhere and proceeded to get pretty drunk! 

The hotel was a 10 minute walk to town so was convenient and easy to make our way back. The rooms were super clean, comfortable and well decorated, my only worry was the heat as there was no air con but each room had a fan so it was bearable! I would definitely recommend booking this Travelodge to stay in as a great budget hotel and would stay here in the future if I were to ever come back to Bournemouth. 





Patchwork Dress - Ette Clothing £20ish // Shoes - Vagabond via Office £80ish // Sun necklace - Car boot sale £2

DRESSING FOR THE AUTUMN *

Top Outfits for Women
We may be in the height of summer, but chances are, you’ll already have your summer capsule wardrobe sorted. However, it won’t be long until the autumnal months set in, and what does that mean? More clothes, of course! Even if you only need to top up your existing wardrobe essentials, there’s always going to be room for more clothes, isn’t there?

Skinny Jeans
Is there a season of the year when skinny jeans don’t look fabulous? Sure, they may look a little out of place on the beach in 30 degree heat, but they’re a great addition to any summer wardrobe during the cooler days and evenings. And, as we drift into autumn and the temperatures drop, skinnies become a first port of call – choose brights if you want to stand out from the crowd and inject a bit of colour into a drab day, or stick with the 
stonewash denims and greys if you’re after a pair that is as versatile as it is comfortable.

Maxi Dress
While the maxi dress is a perfect cover up during the summer, it’s also a fashion staple throughout the autumn as well. Cool enough to wear during the hot days and, teamed with a cardigan, just as elegant and trendy during the cooler ones, the humble George maxi dress should make its way into any wardrobe, and stay there until October.

Biker Jacket
It’s not quite time for a coat that will keep you snug on the freezing days, but chances are, you’ll need some sort of cover-up for when it gets a little chilly. A biker jacket will be a perfect way to look bang on trend, at the same time as staying warm. You don’t even have to spend a fortune on real leather if you don’t have the spare cash either – there’s plenty of leather look bombers available, such as the gorgeous red leather look jacket for £28. Add a stylish scarf for extra fashion points.

Waterfall Cardigan
These stunning, yet simple, cardigans continue to be a popular addition to many a wardrobe, and understandably so. They give the wearer an air of effortless chic; pop on over a simple cami top and jeans combo, or wear with skirts, tapered trousers or dresses. A waterfall cardigan is an ideal, versatile item which you will be able to wear again and again.

Tapered Trousers
Talking of tapered trousers, these are a great item to have in your wardrobe as autumn comes around. Not only are they cool enough to wear during the warmer evenings that summer brings, but they will also look super as part of an autumnal work ensemble, too.

Cami Top
A simple yet timeless classic, the cami top is a top for all seasons. The spaghetti straps will show off gorgeous collarbones, and will suit most skirts, trousers, jeans and shorts. While it may be a little cold to leave your arms bare during the autumn, team with a jacket or cardigan, or wear under a sheer top or crochet sweater, and you’ll be looking and feeling fine.
Make the transition from summer to autumn without a hitch. Stock up on some key pieces now, and you’ll be looking fab (and feeling warm) later!

AMETHYST PAINTBOX

Hii,

I'm a massive big melting pot of a human, this whole blogging in the sun thing is hard work let alone trying to get the right setting on my camera #auto. This whole outfit was a bit of luck, you know those days where three things come for you in the post and you then realise they would all look perfect together, well yeah this outfit was one of those!

The kimono is another beautiful item from IKrush. I was a bit dubious about picking another kimono/jacket to review as I seriously own way too many but this one didn't disappoint, it's even better in real life than it looks online and at £19 I think it's an absolute steal! I matched with my new laser cut crochet skirt that Front Row Shop kindly sent me which is amazing - I love anything cut out and I think the skirt transforms this outfit into quite a dare I say it... 'sophisticated' look? Never thought I would see the day ha. My beautiful and magical Skull Duggery  amethyst crystal necklace tops this look off perfectly, matching my Sleek lipstick.


Kimono jacket - c/o I Krush // Crochet skirt - c/o Front Row Shop // Necklace - c/o Skull Duggery Clothing // Shoes - Topshop £65ish // Crop top - H&M £7.99 // Clutch - Warehouse £28
